16 January – National Nothing Day

Yes. I could not believe it myself. Today, Americans celebrate National Nothing Day.

Created by a newspaperman Harold Pullman Coffin in 1973, his goal for creating this day is “to provide Americans with one national day when they can just sit without celebrating, observing, or honoring anything.”

From the way Mr. Harold puts it, it seems like there are really a lot of days that Americans do celebrate. And yes, he is right. Here is a calander from a Medical & Dental Center in Callifornia. Of course, not all the days stated in the calender is celebrated nationwide, but there are quite some cool days, like National Fun at Work Day & National Relaxation Day.
